Barcelona want to close five priority signings in the next two weeks

Barcelona are reportedly want to close five priority signings in the next two weeks.

With the assembly voting in favour of triggering the economic levers that will allow Barcelona to sell a percentage of stake in the Barça Licensing & Merchandise (BLM) wing, the Catalans are expecting a sizeable injection of funds in the coming weeks.

And, with funds now likely to be available, transfer activity at Camp Nou is set to pick up pace.

Indeed, as per the cover page of SPORT on June 18, Barcelona are ready to ramp up their efforts in the transfer market and close five priority signings in the next two weeks.

It is no secret that Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski is the absolute priority for the Blaugrana this summer and they are set to up the ante in their pursuit of the 33-year-old champion goalscorer.

The Poland captain also has interest from Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain, but he is ready to snub that and wait for the Catalan giants to make their move, with a contract agreement already believed to be in place.

Apart from Lewandowski, Barcelona also wish to finalise the transfer deals to make the signings of Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen.

The midfielder and the defender have already agreed to join the club on Bosman deals, with their contracts with AC Milan and Chelsea expiring on June 30.

However, the signings are yet to be made official due to the lack of room on the salary bill, although that is now likely to e resolved.

Along with the aforementioned three players, Barcelona also have identified two more players as priority targets that they wish to finalise in the next two weeks. The two players are Chelsea defenders Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso.

Like with Lewandowski, Barça are understood to have a contract agreement in place with the Chelsea full-back duo, with both the players intent on returning to Spain. Both have one year left on their respective contracts with the Blues.

Whether Barcelona are successful in their endeavours to complete the signings of the five priority targets within the end of the month will be interesting to see.
